Exhibitor interview: Gareth Williams, managing director, The 1810 Company
Q: What do you hope to achieve at the show?
A: We are hoping to extend our current client base in both retail and contract sectors. We are confident that visitors to our stand will be impressed with our offering and our latest products and innovations are sure to attract lots of attention from retailers, fabricators and the contract market.
Q: Why are trade shows such as this one important for your business?
A: We consider the kbb show to be the perfect platform to showcase our expanding product range. The attendance of visitors from every sector means we can target the different markets over the four days and maximise our exposure to a very wide audience.
Q: Why should retailers come to shows like this? What are the benefits to them?
A: Shows such as this are an ideal platform for retailers to meet with both existing and potential new suppliers and also to view new products in the flesh. It is also vital for retailers to discover the up-and-coming trends so that they can incorporate these in their kitchen designs.
Q: What are you looking forward to most at this year’s kbb show?
A: We are looking forward to welcoming existing and potential clients to our stand. We have doubled the stand size from kbb 2018 to enable us to exhibit even more product, so we’re really looking forward to showing our product offering to all our visitors.
